Hi Friends,  Thanks for visiting my new design sight.  I am working on making this site updated and new.   The best way to navigate on the site is to use the "Browse" tab and find the subject you are looking for.  I have put all my galleries into basic search folders by subject.  It should be clear once you go into the "Browse"


I am excited for the new year with a number of changes coming for Pioneer Photography.  As many of you know, I do about 35 art shows every year and I'm starting think of other creative ways to sell art while reducing the number of shows on the schedule.  Of course I will continue to do the big shows such as Canterbury, Phelps Mill, Bemidji etc. but am working on my health care and corporate art concept to make up for dropping some of the smaller art shows.  I was excited to attend the Minnesota Aging Conference in Minneapolis in early Feb.  My hope was to showcase my new health care "Memories in Art" concept to the hundreds who attend the conference from throughout Minnesota.    Since the Conference, I have been busy with a lot of followup calls and visits.   

Just complete this promo video for senior living communities.  Big thanks to my good friend Jay Grammond for his help.  Click and enjoy


Valley View Nursing Home - Memories in Art   Promo Video


In January I attended the Minnesota County Fair expo and promoted my speaking services.  It was amazing to see the positive response.  I will be very busy in July and August sharing my programs at some fun county fairs.  The most difficult thing will be staying away from all that good fair food.
